Dove Pate

Recommended Posts

I love hunting dove and I find myself with a abundance that I need to consume. I found myself seeking more mays to use the bounty both for ethical reasons and to stay under my possesion limits.  I found this recipe on NRA Family https://www.nrafamily.org/articles/2020/8/5/3-dove-recipes-youve-gotta-try/ and really enjoyed it.  



1. DJ's Dove Pate
Ingredient List:

  1. 1/2 pound boneless dove breasts
  2. 1 bunch green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  3. 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  4. 1/3 cup heavy cream
  5. 1/4 teaspoon each: salt, dry mustard, ground black pepper


  1. Fillet dove breasts from the bone by running a sharp knife carefully between meat and breastbone, from front to back end.
  2. Place green onions in food processor and chop finely.
  3. Melt butter in skillet over medium high heat. 
  4. Briefly saute onions, add dove breasts, and gently cook until meat is no longer red in the center. Allow to cool slightly.
  5. Place contents of skillet in processor with remaining ingredients. Process continuously until smooth. Spoon pate into greased one-cup mold and chill until serving.

Better after chilled on toasted baugette.


Even better the next day on a sandwich with dijon mustard, mayo, and pickled beets.  Many traditional pate sandwiches use cornichons but I didn't have any or any other pickles so I tried the beets.  Yummy.  I would add some greens if I had them.  

Great way to bring along on another hunt.

Nice. We do the bacon, jalepeno, green chili and cream cheese wrapped smoked thing with all of ours but I would like to try this some time. Thanks!

Those are hard to beat - a pate sandwich with bacon and pickled jalapeno is on my to try list.

I bet jalapeno poppers might be pretty good.
